Jerry Robert Bolland

May 22nd, 1980 - June 2nd, 2022

Jerry Robert Bolland, 42, died unexpectedly June 2, 2022 at PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center in Vancouver Washington as a result of injuries sustained during a hit and run incident. He was born May 22, 1980 and was raised near Parker, Idaho in the home of Henry (“Bud”) and Ina Kay Bolland. He grew up and attended schools in Parker and Saint Anthony Idaho.

Jerry had a deep love for motorcycles and riding. He felt happiest when on his bike, and often talked about experiences he had on his rides. He loved fixing motorcycles and cars, and was a skilled mechanic. He also loved his many tattoos. Each one of them had special meaning to him, usually connected to an experience or a person he loved. He loved music, particularly The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and never tired of listening to their albums.

Perhaps one of the most memorable things about Jerry was his optimism and capacity to love unconditionally. He loved his family deeply, and loved his friends as if they were his family. His optimism was contagious, and his sense of humor and laugh was memorable.

He is preceded in death by his adoptive father and grandfather Henry (“Bud”) Bolland, and his brother Lee Scott Bolland. He is survived by so many loved ones that will forever have a giant hole in their hearts. His wife Amanda Metro Bolland, his children Dawna, Brandon, Oakley, Kyrus, Kynan, Trevor and Isaiah, his adoptive mother and biological grandmother Ina Kay Bolland, biological parents Brad Bolland and Cathi Driggers Williamson, adoptive siblings/uncle/aunts Kevin, Kathy (Ashley), and Lori (Bolland-Embree), and siblings Steven, Jessica (Hitt), and Justin (Bryan), and his best friend, Dennise Dutton.

A memorial gathering will be held Sunday June 19, 2pm at the home of Ina Kay Bolland; his childhood home, 2025 E 600 N, St Anthony Idaho. Loved ones may also join a zoom connection to Jerry’s memorial at the link below:
